    took some more pictures today - think it suits its surroundings quite well!

    Yep - I got the padded/fatty version.. I think it's the same girth as the newer M3 wheels.. feels fantastic!

    The final piece turned up yesterday - the ///M badge for the lower part of the steering wheel. I had though about leaving it off/plain - but decided it belongs on the wheel and gives it a finished look...

    Fitting was interesting to say the least - as you can see the badge has 2 thick plastic prongs which lock it into place:





    Fitting the badge is quite fiddly - you need to feel through the leather for the indentation of where the badge sits and then I took a thick sewing needle and gently pressed through to get the location of the holes. Once the location of the holes was established - I then rotated the needle in a circular fashion to enlarge the holes slightly. I then offered up the badge and pressed it firmly down into place (making sure it locked). Job done!

    That's a nice job Pangster, looks much better. I have to say I am seriously tempted but concerned I'd drop a huge bo!!ock in taking my old wheel off/putting new one on!
